How do i install LimeWire?

I really need help installing LimeWire. I never use it to download copyrighted stuff so don't get mad at me. I simply use it to transfer file documents to my friends. If someone could help me that would be great. i think I should use Wine. But i don't know how.

Yes, you can get Java from Sun if it's not already installed
